Thanks, Ana. The developer is Elephant. Last year's game of Christmas Stories: Nutcracker was excellent, and it's great to see this new Christmas game from them. thumbsup wave

What a lovely game! Especially enjoyed the intro. And the music is quite nice. I have quite a backlog of new games to play, but not sure I can wait for this one. I'll give it a couple of days. think

I think I'll hold off on this one for a little while. It's a gorgeous game and I think I'll wait until it snows. I just played a little bit to find out if it works ok.

Looks like a another winner from Elephant games. Those people are magicians. I love their games and probably have every one.

Gail, you should still try to get The Nutcracker. It was a very good game. wave

This was one of the most beautiful games I've seen in a while.
I couldn't stop playing it. I loved every minute of it.

Beware those of you who have not yet purchased this game: There are glitches that prevent continuing on with the game. One has to do with placement of certain parts of an amulet. Another is the inability to go back and pick up a needed item. Because I'll have to start the game over, I'd recommend waiting until there was a fix before buying. holidays

Thanks, Sherlock. That Tim's amulet puzzle sounds quite finicky; lots of suggestions on the BF forum as to how to try to get past it. wave12

I had just slight problems with that one and it was before I knew others had problems. I just focused on the culprit arm and, after a few tries, voila. It's frustrating because you know where it goes, you put it there and nothing happens. Then, suddenly, it works. The bowl problem is even more frustrating because you simply can't go back into that scene once you place the soldier. woozy12

Just finished the game. Lovely. Charming. I was a little skeptical about my enjoyment as last years offering was so outstanding. I was tickled that I liked " A Christmas Carol" even more than "The Nutcracker". Great music and graphics, and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Didn't experience any glitches. A big thumbs up on this one!
